Here's a troubleshooting guide for that issue: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=153006&modelname=HL-P5063W
Let me know the results of it please!
I was watching my TV this afternoon and heard a pop and the picture went to black and white, flashed a couple of times before finally turning into simply a 60" radio (NO PIC). I can confirm that it is NOT my lamp, as I my model is 7 years old and I always keep a spare lamp for such cases, removed it, and replaced it with the new one.
Once I replaced the lamp and plugged tv back in, it came on automatically. Lamp lite flashing like normal, sound, no picture, after about a minute the tv turned itself off and tried to come back on, like it was rebooting itself. This happened a couple of times so I tried to turn it off manually but could not. I had to unplug to turn off.
Can anyone tell me what they think or if they have experienced this and what the problem may be. Not sure if this is bad color wheel or bad ballast.
Please help...it is football season and I need my tv.
